Please tell a story about a time when a person or organization tried to help someone or change something in your community:

Relief Food

Most of the Kenyans live below the poverty line. Its very difficult for some of the people in our communities to live on an expenditure of one dollar. This is evident to places where agriculture is not like political instability and lack of enough funds to cater for common recurring basic wants. The government has helped the country to get more aids especially of food from leading agricultural countries. The security starts with food and if you don't have, then you are insecure. After good education, wealth is the next but you can not succeed without good health.. WHO and the Red Cross are organisations that volunteer to promote social living standards of people. They offer relief food to the people restoring their health and also giving them hope for living and identifying themselves as natives of their countries. Food in such areas improves the health of growing children and men and women who had lots of signs of good health and provide energy for them to work.
